“It is very economical to help move this program forward, from my perspective,” said Roger. “We need confident young, citizens, and it is very easy for me to slide this through my plant and pick up the cost of the newsprint to help make that happen.”

The ACT High School CPR Program was made possible in Alberta thanks to generous community and provincial-level support which enabled the donation of mannequins, teacher training and curriculum resources. Provincial partners of the program are Alberta Education and the STARS Foundation (a founding provincial partner) as well as Alberta print partner Star Press Inc.
The ACT Foundation’s health partners, who support the program in Alberta communities and throughout Canada are: AstraZeneca, Bristol-Myers Squibb Canada, Pfizer Canada and sanofi-aventis. They provide ACT’s sustaining funding and are committed to the Foundation’s national goal of promoting health and empowering Canadians to save lives.
The Advanced Coronary Treatment (ACT) Foundation is an award-winning, national charitable organization dedicated to establishing CPR in high schools across Canada. ACT raises funds to donate mannequins, teacher training, manuals and other materials to schools, and guides schools in program set-up and long-term sustainability. Teachers teach CPR to their students as a regular part of the curriculum. More than 1.4 million youth have been trained in CPR through this lifesaving program to date.
